This site is intended to be a very handy resource for anyone fishing in the Hastings area especially visitors to the area. The website features regularly updated information about the local fishing, conditions, matches and what is happening with our online store.

Our links to the weather and tides will help you plan your trip. Links to the local clubs and fisheries will also be of great interest.

We have some super special clearance offers and some pretty unique products. Our secondhand section is also worth browsing regularly as it  always changing and a great place for a bargain or picking up a now discontinued item. 


We are blessed in this area with exceptionally good Dungeness lugworm which is the top local bait for most species. Fresh lugworm (live or wrapped) is usually available (tide and weather permitting!) please call 01424 432178 and we can reserve your requirements for collection. We can also send live yellowtail lugworm and wrapped black lug fresh, salted and frozen, see the bait section for details. Maggots, casters and worms are also normally available in the shop.

We carry a very extensive range of frozen baits for sea, coarse and carp. Please click on the bait section to see what we have in stock.
